Daily Deviation

Given 2006-09-27
I've always associated the wolf with an almost spiritual status. 'How Will the Wolf Survive' by Los Lobos further enhanced the feeling. Now along comes Raipun's wolves with it's lush color palette and beautiful delicate brushwork to write it in stone. Or at least carve it in my heart. It's one of the most endearing wolf paintings I've ever seen. wolves by ~Raipun. ( Suggested by wholba and Featured by dholms )

Still struggling to comprehend that that is not a photo.... The skill and time that must have gone into this are far beyond my understanding. Great painting!

I thought this was a photo at first but after glancing at it and then finally seeing the tags I was surprised to find out that this is a painting. Good job!

OMG!!!! Emotion-Yeeey! Emotion-Yeeey! Emotion-Yeeey! 
What an awesome masterpiece!! The colors are really amazing!
And their faces are sooo real that they seem to be going to jump out of the picture anytime! I love how have you managed to get that bright on their eyes, that "something" that make them look like alive.

Congratulations! It has nothing to envy from a real photo.
